Card making can be a fun, rainy day project for everyone. Card designs don't have to be complicated, plus, making cards according to themes is a lot easier. Here'a an easy hang out invitation card to try out!
What You Need:
- A2 top folding card base
- Sponge dauber - by Imagin Craftrs (can be replaced with make up sponge)
- Gel pen
- Colour marker or any colour medium
- Background template
- VersaColor 159 Mountain lake
- VersaColor 160 Winter Green
- VersaCraft 139 Pale Aqua
- VersaMagic Aquatic Splash
- Acrylic block
- Double sided foam tape
- Black pigment ink by Brilliance Tsukineko
- Artline200 0.4tip
Step 2: Place your template and secure it with washi tape
Step 3: Dauber time!
...And this is what you will get! Easy peasy! If you are a perfectionist, it might get a little frustrating when you don't get the patterns perfectly inked! Haha! Maybe, try playing a soothing music in the bakcground and give yourself some time to give it a shot. Test it on a separate piece of paper.
Step 4: Selecting your stamp image
Step 5 : Ink your image
Step 6: Heat emboss
Step 7: Add on
Step 8: Colouring
Step 9: Cut-out the image
Step 10: Adding messages and touch ups
YAY! You've made it!
I have been receiving emails asking me where do I get my stamp sets from. I usually order it from SimonSaysStamp but they are all in USD. Malaysian crafters, there are always local stores to shop for pretty stamps, such as Craft Haven, Scrap-n-Crop and many more.
Alternatively, you may also download free images from Google, print it, colour it and use it on your personal project. That's how I started. Try to search keywords like "free digital stamps" and you'll get what you want.
